FOURTEENTH STATION / GHANA

JESUS IS LAD IN THE TOMB

XIV STATION  /  GHANA


Consider the Son of God accepting to come and pay for the sins of mankind, how he kept quiet from the wicked treatment men gave him till his death on the cross. He concentrated on our welfare. He did not look for his own; that is why after his death, his body was released from the wood of the cross and placed in a tomb, a tomb not meant for him but for someone else. His treatment was better than that of the two robbers had and who had also been crucified with him by the Roman soldiers and left exposed. Their situation clearly proved that they had family and friends but never cared because of the shame they had brought to the family and to themselves. In the case of Jesus, he was fortunate enough to receive unusual attention and care from Joseph of Arimathea. In our world today appropriate burial of bodies is a sacred tradition whether they played a good role or did not. It is important that we ensure the resting place for those who have died in our homes and communities. The real cause of Jesus death was for us to be saved from shame and bondage of sin which has engulfed humanity today.

PRAYER:


Lord Jesus, I remember the fact that your death wasn’t some charade, rather you really died. Thus you experienced the ultimate penalty for my sins and the sins of the world. Help me to die to my selfishness, greed, inordinate desire, anger, pride, stubbornness, envy and assist me in giving befitting burial to our departed brothers and sisters in order to rise with you in glory.

Our Father….

Hail Mary….

Glory be….
